Are you planning to travel with South West Trains on a weekend in January or February?

South West Trains

SW Trains is a British train operating company owned by Stagecoach Group operating the South Western franchise.

The South West Trains-Network Rail Alliance will be undertaking a £7 million programme of track maintenance work in the Wimbledon area. Our engineering teams will be replacing 12 sets of points (used to cross trains between different lines) positioned to the West of Wimbledon Station.

The infrastructure in the area dates back to the 1970’s and is now at the end of its working life. Due to the sheer number of trains which pass through the Wimbledon area, speed restrictions or other problems here can cause delays and cancellations right across the network. This work will improve reliability and punctuality of trains across this vital part of our route.

This work will result in the closure of all lines in the Wimbledon area, affecting most South West Trains routes on the following dates:

It will also involve some preparatory work on some midweek nights in late November and December. This element of the programme will have minimal impact on the train service but will mean some alterations to late night services.

On weekday nights throughout January and February trains that would run through Wimbledon after 00:25 will be altered with buses replacing some journeys.
